    This long-awaited volume brings together for the ?rst time the life’s work of a major American
    voice.
    In a remarkable generation of poets, Galway Kinnell was an acknowledged, true master. From
    the book-length poem memorializing the grit, beauty, and swarming assertion of immigrant life
    along a lower Manhattan avenue, to searing poems of human con?ict and war, to incandescent
    re?ections on love, family, and the natural world - including "Blackberry Eating," "St. Francis and
    the Sow," and "After Making Love We Hear Footsteps" - to the un?inchingly introspective poems
    of his later life, Kinnell’s work lastingly shaped the consciousness of his age.
    Spanning 65 years of intense, inspired creativity, this volume, with its inclusion of previously
    uncollected poems, is the essential collection for old and new devotees of a "poet of the rarest
    ability . . . who can ?esh out music, raise the spirits, and break the heart." (Boston Globe)
    AUTHOR:
    Galway Kinnell (1927-2014) was a MacArthur Fellow and state poet of Vermont. In 1982 his
    Selected Poems won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. For many years he was the
    Erich Maria Remarque Professor of Creative Writing at New York University, as well as a
    chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. For thirty-five years-from The Book of Nightmares
    to Mortal Acts and, most recently, Strong Is Your Hold-Galway Kinnell enriched American poetry,
    not only with his poems but also with his teaching and powerful public readings.
